Workshops and Courses
City of Edinburgh Council Adult Education programme
You can access and book the whole range of Edinburgh Council adult education classes here.
I regularly run creative writing classes and guided walks as part of this programme, but only generally use social media to advertise the ones that don't sell out really quickly!
I've facilitated 'creative writing inspired by nature workshops' for a range of organisations including Connecting Craigmillar (as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival), Outlook (City of Edinburgh's mental health community education project), Gorgie City Farm, Sharing Secrets Festival (Dalry Primary School), Vogrie Country Park and University of Edinburgh Continuing Education Programme.
I've facilitated jewellery making workshops for Outlook.
I've lead guided nature walks for various organisations including the Woodland Trust, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), Friends of Saughton Park and Outlook.
I'm currently available on a freelance basis to offer guided nature walks and outdoor workshops on creative writing, particularly poetry or writing inspired by nature. I can also offer workshops on making your work more enviromentally friendly. Email Juliet.M.WilsonATgmailDOTcom for more information. Prices for a two hour workshop generally start at £150 for community groups and small charities and £250 for larger charities and commercial organisations.
I've given public readings of my poetry and short stories including at Meadows Festival, Silencio, Kin, Ten Red, Edinburgh International Book Festival and during my time as poet in residence at the Forest Cafe. Please contact me (Juliet.M.WilsonATgmailDOTcom) if you're looking for an environmentally engaged poet!
